In some situations, grocery delivery can help to save you money. Here’s how:
Knowing the total beforehand
This one might also sound familiar and can tie in with the impulse spending: how often have you walked up to the check-out line and expected the total to only be a certain amount, and then you found yourself suppressing a gasp when it turns out being double—or even triple—that amount? When you grocery shop online, you can see just how much you’re about to spend before submitting your order. If it’s way beyond your grocery budget for that month, you can make some shopping cart adjustments as necessary—something that’s not too easy to do when you’re at the grocery store checkout line and the items have already been rung up.
Time is money
Consider the amount of time you take to make a trip to the grocery store—this includes getting ready, driving to the store, shopping, driving back, and bringing everything inside. You can significantly cut this time down if your grocery store happens to be on the way home from work, but you still have to consider the actual time spent inside the grocery store and remember that time is money.
Picking up your groceries curbside
For those who pass right by a grocery store on a daily basis and don’t have to think about added transportation costs, but the idea of saving time is appealing, look into curbside pickup. More and more grocers are allowing customers to shop online, but pick up their order outside of the store instead of opting for the delivery service.
